LAND BIOMES OF THE WORLD climate.
Desert Biomes climate.
Near 30º north and 30º south latitudes
Less than 25 cm of rainfall per year,
temperatures high during the day and cool
Cacti, thorny bushes and shrubs, small
Snakes, lizards, kangaroos, rats, roadrunners
Plants can store water in their stems; desert
animals are usually active at night (nocturnal) &
avoid heat & water loss by burrowing in the ground

GRASSLAND BIOMES climate.
Irregular rainfall averaging 50 cm per year,
long hot summers, cold winters
Tall and short grasses, few trees
Prairie dogs, coyotes, jack rabbits, ground
squirrels, burrowing owls, bisons, elk,
Grazing animals have flat teeth for

reach 10ºC, snow & ice cover the ground most
of the time

(also known as “TAIGA BIOME")
From 45 to 125 cm of rainfall per year, depending
on the region; short, moderate summers; cold,
Pines, firs, hemlocks, spruces
Moose, black bears, elks, hares, wolves,

including hot, humid summers & cold dry
Oaks, maples, beeches, hickories
White-tail deer, beavers, foxes, bobcats, hawks,
Deciduous trees lose their leaves to reduce
water loss in dry winter; some mammals

TWO TYPES OF climate.
Streams and rivers compose the runningwater
biomes. These biomes have continuously
Lakes and ponds compose thestanding water
biomes. The organisms in these biomes live
in the different parts of the water. Most of them
are found on the edges and shallow portions
of the water.
